American Society for Reproductive Medicine tell you truth about infertility

Post  emma on Sat Mar 28, 2009 9:10 am

Thanks to American Society for Reproductive Medicine,then, we know some fact as fellow:

1. Infertility affects roughly 12 percent of people of reproductive age in the United States, or about 7.3 million women and their partners.

2. Infertility is gender blind: It affects men and women in equal numbers. The most common problem in men is low or no sperm count; for women, it's problems with ovulation.

3. Nearly all cases of infertility—85 to 90 percent—can be resolved through traditional medical treatments like drugs or surgery that repairs reproductive organs.

4. In vitro fertilization and similar procedures account for under 3 percent of infertility treatments.

5. The average live delivery rate for IVF in 2005 was nearly 32 percent per egg retrieval, slightly better than the 20 percent odds that a reproductively healthy couple in any given month will get pregnant and carry a baby to term.

Latest research:How couples handle the stress of infertility treatment has more to do with their personalities and the nature of their relationship than the process of treatment itself, Belgian researchers report.
